Thanks to the screener who took the time to send a personal message over this shot.
Im normally good at levelling the pics and thought this one was no exception however its been given a badlevel of which i will accept.

The question is which way does it need rotating, the more i look at it the more i see it as level?

some feedback from anyone out there will help...

Hi Ryan,

excellent shot. I think it needs a little bit of CW rotation.
Edit: I base that on the brick building in the bottom right corner.

Ryan, I looked at your photo and had a difficult time. The orange pole at the top of the tower leans right, but the other poles lean left. I used the British Flag pole and wound up rotating .45 degrees CW. It looked better after that, even though the orange pole leaned further right. Nice shot and good luck getting it in.

I'd say use the corner of the control tower's wall. Needs just a little bit of Clockwise.

I think that to be picky about this shot is foolish, it is a great shot. Ok the flag poles lean in two directions, but hey does it matter?

By the time you get yourself set up the subject could be well gone, I think at the angle you took the shot it self makes the objects look a bit off but its not your fault.

Leave it as is, I say..

Yankee, when they say angle, it is not the angle of the camera to the plane it is the angle of the camera to the ground. We are using the poles as references to make the shot 100% vertical. The photo can and should be leveled better, and A.net will reject anything they think isn't level.

Yeah, CW it off the tower, Ry. I ended up around 1.14 degrees; I only tried once but it was an improvement. That levelled the tower and the Union flag flagpole.
